Meet Mariah Means-Madaris

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mariah Means-Madaris. 

Hi Mariah, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
My name is Mariah as known as Riah Bella owner of Rbluv Production and Production company. I grew up in Cincinnati, OH. I am a mother of two Rilyn 10 years old and Romel 5 years old. I went to Lakota East High school. In High school, I started my career in radio broadcasting, modeling, and music. I had my own live broadcasted radio show from 16 to 18 years old (89.9 WLHS). After graduating I tapped more into music and modeling. A month after graduating high school my friends and I got an opportunity to throw college parties at a well-known bar/ club in Cincinnati. So that began my journey in promotions. Years later I was cast for a movie with Don Cheadle “Miles Ahead” I played “Nora” from Columbia records. That inspired me to put more motivation into building my new production company. After starting the company I got an opportunity to Produce a Music Video for the artist PnB Rock and Vic Oladipo. Went on tour with Speed Walton and Talib Kweli as Promotions manager. Fast forward to today September 2021 I survived a traumatic life-changing experience that inspired me to start a nonprofit for survivors of domestic violence. I am now currently building a studio in Cincinnati for artist development and visual Production. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Overall, I have been blessed beyond measures. Don’t get me wrong it is not easy at all and far from a smooth road but I am passionate about what I do and no matter what I go through I remember what I’m doing it for! One of the struggles I have experienced along the way is being the only woman. So sometimes you have to work a little harder to really be taken seriously. I never let that stop me though it was just fire to the fuel to keep going! 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
